Sweet Potato Pecan Bars
- In a medium mixing bowl combine butter and the 1/4 cup sugar. Stir in graham cracker crumbs and the 3 tablespoons pecans until well-combined. Press onto bottom of a lightly greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly (5 minutes) while preparing filling.
- For filling, in a large bowl stir together beaten eggs, mashed sweet potatoes, and sour cream. Stir in the 1/2 cup sugar, the flour, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon until smooth. Stir in milk. Pour sweet potato mixture over prebaked crust, spreading evenly. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 25 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Immediately sprinkle with remaining chopped nuts; press lightly into filling. Cool completely. Cut into bars about 2x1-1/2-inches. Cover and store in refrigerator up to 24 hours. Makes 36 bars.

It looks like small marshmallows melted on top, under the pecans.Were they left out of the recipe?
